Webber has been pilloried for a ‘jail’ statement aimed at five black footballers, including the Pompey teenager - which saw Kamara thrust into the national spotlight through no fault of his own.

The 20-year-old issued a response stating he was ‘deeply saddened and shocked’ by the sentiments aired, as he spoke of his pride at his background.

The Londoner delivered his response on the pitch at Wycombe in the most emphatic manner possible, as he gave the home defence a torrid time in his team’s 3-1 success.

Kamara produced the assist for both of Colby Bishop’s goals, before laying on the cross which led to Christian Saydee putting the game to bed at Adams Park.

Bishop saluted the winger’s performance, as his form gets more an more impressive as the season reaches its climax.

And the striker highlighted how Kamara is showing his maturity on and off the pitch with is conduct.

Bishop said: ‘Abu was unplayable.

‘He’s a special talent and his performances speak for themselves.

‘Abs is doing it every week and, at his age, to be terrifying full-backs is brilliant.

‘He’s brilliant for me. To have a winger like that who you know is going to take on his defender is going to set you up is great. I can’t speak highly enough of him.

‘He’s a great kid and fair play to him for speaking out, because a lot of lads his age wouldn’t have the thought process to think I’m saying something back - and so he should, because it was wrong.

‘We all fully back him - he’s a brilliant kid and a brilliant player.’
